    Hey Ryan,

    Good interview. I like the “professional” direction that your music is taking you all.

    Amazing! When I opened your email I was sitting here listening to Grisman’s Acoustic Christmas album. Been enjoying John Fahey, too. Good stuff.

    Kathleen and I can’t wait for y’all to get here next week.

    Keep up the good work.
